I'm on Prelude, and there is no way I can type a
\. I was thinking maybe I should create a keybinding but I don't know how to create it to output a character such as
\. Any help welcome! Thank you!
Emacs by default doesn't associate
\ with any command… You should be able to directly type it without any trouble. If you cannot, then you should have a module enabled, which takes it.
If you need further help, please answer the following questions:
- are you using emacs in terminal (in a TTY?) or in graphical mode?
- where do you want to type a backslash? In a document body, in the minibuffer, elsewhere?
- as @phils asks, what does
C-h k \give you?
- what is your keyboard layout?
